We’re excited to announce we have officially launched a state of the art team event option for the Eventzee application! While in the past, event participants could potentially work as a team under a single Eventzee account, this worked better for in-person events. The extended functionality comes as a highly requested feature from clients, particularly those hosting team-building or ice breaker-style events.
“With virtual events, coordinating with team members in different locations and maybe even different time zones is already difficult,” said Craig Holland, CEO of Freeze Tag. “With the Eventzee Teams version, team members can be in different locations and still contribute to their overall team’s score.”
The main difference between Eventzee team events and regular events is that team events have extra Team Scoring options for event hosts to specify their requirements. Unlike some other scavenger hunt apps, each team member’s score can affect the overall team score in Eventzee team events, if the host chooses. Event hosts have the flexibility to require all team members to complete a challenge, just one team member, or any number in between. In addition, depending on the member requirement they chose, event hosts can specify whether they want only the top N or bottom N scores to count, or to have all the scores added together.
Utilizing Eventzee’s Team functions and white label program, Barnes Harley Davidson launched the exclusive Squad Wars: Coast To Coast app. This exciting, multiplayer, motorcycle riding experience has riders driving to landmarks and businesses throughout North America.
Event hosts also have the option to create teams and assign participants to them, or to leave it up to their participants to form their own teams. For the latter option, a minimum and maximum number of members can be specified so that teams must be within that range before they can start to work on the challenges. Regardless of which team-forming option event hosts choose, they always have the ability to create their own teams and move participants to different teams, if conflicts arise.
In events where participants are allowed to create their own teams, the team captains are given a Team Manager role which allows them full control over their members — they can invite, cancel invites, accept or reject join requests, promote to the Team Manager role, and remove. In addition, the Team area in the Social tab only displays messages from other team members, unlike regular events where the Chat is open to all participants. This private team chat allows team members to use the Eventzee app to plan, strategize, and coordinate their efforts.
If you’re interested in hosting an Eventzee scavenger hunt visit our website and contact our team to set up the best package for you.

Businesses can use the app to drive traffic to specific locations, promote vendors or products and increase social interactions, while observing appropriate social distances. Some clients use Eventzee to hold contests and give away prizes to their most engaged customers. There are many ways Eventzee can help you achieve your business goals.

We’re excited to announce that a new version of the Eventzee app will be available for download! The latest version of Eventzee has been totally reworked to offer virtual events and scavenger hunts for any occasion. Whether you’re looking for a team building exercise, new ways to engage with your customers, or a fun family activity, the NEW Eventzee app provides the most features of any scavenger hunt app available.
Eventzee, the state of the art virtual event and scavenger hunt app, is now available on iOS and Android devices. Those interested in utilizing Eventzee’s services can learn more at eventzeeapp,com.
We’re excited to release the new Eventzee, complete with a collection of brand new features, so allow us to break down some of our favorite aspects of the new app!
One of the most noticeable changes is the release of the new Eventzee logo! The mission of the new app is to offer a tool for people working together to solve challenges, and interacting with one another via virtual events and scavenger hunts. Our new logo appropriately showcases the power a group of diverse people have when they work together to locate, and complete challenges in a real world setting.
Each Eventzee event will now feature three distinct sections within the dashboard.
Event- What would be considered “Home,” this section includes the event description and details, allows you to see your stats particular to that event, and there’s even a spot to upload a profile picture!
Challenges- This section will show you a list of all challenges. The different challenge types are defined by their corresponding icon. When you click on a challenge you’ll then be able to see the challenges’ expanded description, any accompanying photos, and here you’ll also complete the challenge depending on the type.
Social- Here’s where you can interact with other players in your event! There are three features within the Social section.
- Feed- Here players can see one another’s approved photos and videos and “like” them to cheer each other on.
- Chat- Using this feature players can chat amongst themselves, strategize and work together
- Leaderboard- See how you stack up against other players! Can you go for gold?
The NEW Eventzee app offers 7 different Challenge types!
- Photo– An Eventzee classic! Photo challenges encourage interaction and drive creativity.
- Video- Take your challenge to the next level with 30 second video submissions.
- Quiz- Challenge your players’ minds with multiple choice questions.
- GPS- Prove that X marks the spot by checking in to specific GPS locations.
- QR Code- Locate and find hidden QR codes.
- Text- Gather information from your players via fill-in-the-blank questions, and approve the submissions in real time.
- Information- Share important information regarding challenges, locations, and more with informational tips.
Any mix of challenges can also be combined together in a Grouped Challenge to require players to complete a number of challenges at a time in order to earn the points. This is specifically helpful if you want a variety of challenges to be completed at one location. For example, guide players to a specific location with a GPS challenge, have them answer a Quiz question based on Information in that area, and take a Photo while you’re there for good measure!
Challenges can also host informational photos within the description as well for an alternative clue to what the challenge requires. For example, use an example photo to show players a specific statue or landmark they’re looking for. This section is also a great spot for showing branded images to showcase your organization’s logos, marketing materials, and more.
Now running your event is easier than ever! Admins of events can approve photo, video, and text submissions within the app itself. You’ll still use the web admin tool to set up your hunt, create your challenges, and more, but the new app makes approving on the day of your event much simpler.
If you’re an admin you can access this section via the hamburger menu. From there a new menu will appear where you can review submissions, message players, download user media, post announcements and more.
A BRAND New Opportunity
Another exciting aspect of the new Eventzee app is the ability for clients to host their own white-label version of the Eventzee app. This totally unique app branded to your specifications uses the Eventzee technology, but operates as a separate build hosted by the client. Although development costs depend on the scope of the project, this high-end option is perfect for brands that want to make an impact in a partnership with Eventzee.
Our company has already kicked off its first white label project with the release of the Barnes Nation app this Spring! Hosted by Barnes Harley-Davidson in BC, Canada, Barnes Nation is a lifestyle app designed to get motorcycle riders out exploring the open roads and meeting new friends.
The NEW Eventzee app is an entirely new build, so you will not update your current version of the Eventzee app. Instead you will need to search for the new version in your phone’s app store.
Over the next few weeks we’ll be transitioning a number of aspects to the new system. We will keep the previous version of the Eventzee app running for some time, but we do plan to shut down that version in the near future. You can read more about how it relates to Munzee Events on the Munzee blog. Although the older version of the app will be available to use, it will be removed from the app store later this week and not be available for future installs.
We’re also working on a new pricing platform, but ultimately want to work with clients to best suit their needs. If you’re interested in hosting your own Eventzee virtual events and scavenger hunts please fill out the contact form on our website and we’ll start working with you today! Thank you all for your support over the years- we’re excited to bring you a streamlined app with new challenges and other new features!
